          Jim Moriarty was the hottest character of the show, and that's saying a lot considering Benedict fucking Cumberbatch was in that show.

                  Andrew scott has a magnetic personality. I wish he didn't care about keeping his talk short because he made a lot of sense.
                  Hope he wins an Oscar someday.

                                                  “I was brought up catholic” is universal slang for “nowadays I’m gay and an atheist, but feel kinda bad about it”
